#1 on the MPAA's most wanted list is an individual with the screen name ' aXXo '. aXXo is an internet legend among the p2p file sharing community. Each month millions of people around the world download dvd rips created by aXXo . This person even has a page on Wikipedia.

considering i just spent $14.50 per ticket on a recent movie, aXXo is a working class hero :)


(not that i would even bother downloading a dvd - just not worth the bother)

Commentin' on:
--aXXo is a working class hero--

Indeed he is. While I give thanks for his efforts, I think this internet archive should not host movies he has liberated. The good works of aXXo and his contemporaries are available through literally hundreds of other websites and several protocols. Thousands of offerings found on the Internet Archive are available nowhere else. For that reason, it would be a shame to lose this resource due to the unwanted attention our beloved piracy sometimes brings. It is too bad the IA's caretakers have abandoned it.

in total agreement with you Casey - kinda weird that the IA seems to care less
